Tilly Ramsay shrugs off chubby row as Strictly outfits boost confidence

Tilly Ramsay says she loves wearing sexy outfits on Strictly.

The daughter of TV chef Gordon is feeling more confident than ever – despite being branded “chubby” by radio host Steve Allen.

And the 19-year-old vowed to go from strength to strength after winning huge backing for how she handled the cruel taunts.

She told us: “I have loved wearing all the dresses. I love the mix of outfits.

“I feel like I’m easy with the wardrobe department. They give me something and I say, ‘Yeah, I’m happy’.

“I know they are always going to make us look amazing.”

Tilly added: “Doing Strictly has ­increased my confidence. I am loving being me and having fun. Hopefully I am inspiring other people to do the same.”

It comes after LBC host Allen, 67, called her “a chubby little thing” on his show.

She hit back on Instagram and won high praise from Strictly viewers.

Tilly said: “I am very glad I put out a statement about it. I said what I wanted to say. I have had some very positive reactions. That’s so lovely. I am grateful for all the support.

“It’s hard that lots of people feel like they have to face stuff like this.

“Everyone is dealing with their own things. But now I am drawing a line under it, moving on and focusing on dancing.”
